The Red Cross is always there whenever aid is needed. To alleviate suffering, but also to prevent it. This is why we need your support today and tomorrow more than ever.
Me Matteo Pedrazzini
In Geneva, as around the world, the Red Cross works to preserve the dignity of people. Faithful to its mission and committed to the principles of humanity, the Geneva Red Cross works tirelessly to provide local aid to the most vulnerable populations in the canton of Geneva.
Presentation of the Committees
The Red Cross Ball in Geneva is supported by many friends who sit on the various committees. This precious support enables the event to extend throughout Switzerland and beyond and plays a major role in the evening’s success. The commitment of the different committees make a considerable contribution.

Mrs. Absa Kane
I joined the Red Cross ball commitee in 2008 and I was instantly caught by the virus while working with my colleagues of the commitee and interacting with the volunteers , the staff and management of the Red Cross.
Contributing with some of my time, contacts and passion to maintain the SRC Ball as one of the key Geneva charity events, together with my co-chair and colleagues has been over this decade a source of personal motivation and pride.
Mrs. Dania Samawi
Mrs. Ingeborg van der Burg
After 3 years being a part of this fantastic team I have learned so much about the Red Cross and have been given the chance to travel and see with my own eyes the difference we can make for so many people in need, all around the world and close to home.
It makes me proud and humble at the same time that I can contribute my small part in this big organization that changes lives for the better in a world that seems to need that humane and impartial help more and more every day.
Mrs Raheek Ador
The recent field mission we undertook to Nepal, as a committee, was an eye-opener, both in terms of the unique access the Swiss Red Cross has to remote areas, and the professional way in which the organization provides basic needs for the local communities, without compromising their human dignity, and, respect.
Mrs. Elisabetta Boselli-Mauro
I have always admired the Red Cross for their relentless pursue to help those in need and for the relief efforts to which it contributes. It is a distinct honor for me to be able to donate as a member of the Committee.
Mrs. Lousie Lombard
For me the Red Cross is the perfect symbol of help to the most deprived, of support to those skinned of life, a symbol of peace, of unity, of sharing and the gift of oneself; a gesture of the heart and the love of others. This is what motivated me.
